Well, I'm working on my bank account. When it is ready, I will be working on a bolt gun. Rem 700 PSS or a Winchester M70 Stealth. Still undecided.

The rifle is the cheap part. Its the mounts and optics that will kill the bank account. I decided on the PSS because I'm familiar with the 700 action and trigger assembly there is also a ton of after market parts available for the PSS.

Gun wise:
My first rifle, an AR-15. Configured as close to an M16A2 as I can on a pre-ban semi lower. It will be a parts-kit-gun (J&T or Olympic kit). Just waiting for the next gun show to come to Milwaukee...

Car wise:
Replacing my now-totaled 91 Firebird (Why can't people watch where they're going/remember where the brake pedal is?). I need to find another 91 305/350 (sorry, but a V6 in a Firebird is just odd), in Wisconsin or Illinois, in good-to-excellent condition (I know, good luck...).

Im looking to build an Ar15 long distance target shooter, Ive got a complete Bushy lower that Im not using, so Ill probibly go with a 20" bushmaster V-match upper with stainless barrel and free floating handguards, then add a bipod, bug scope etc.. Im liquidating some parts on ebay to pay for it, check them out if your intrested.

I have somethings in mind but have to see how the funds are.

My wife wants a revolver, at first she was thinking .38spl now she is considering .45colt

I have to get her to try shooting the .45 first.
She wants is mainly for nostolgia reasons (her grandfather).

Well see what she can handle.
I'm kinda glad she is trying something different as she has had a .25acp for the longest. Its o.k. but.... there are better choices.

For me, well I have quite a bit to finish up.
I have to complete my two DCM/CMP AR's, they have been sitting in limbo for a few years.

More 1911 & Sendero modifications.

Trying to deceide on glass bedding the M1A.
Getting the Fulton Armory Brown laminated National Match stock.

I would also like a second .40 as I have the Glock-27 but would likle a full size HK USP in .40

Also another 1911.

Then i'm pretty much done.

My only thoughts have been:
A 6mm BR Benchrest gun based upon a Neiseka Bay Precision action with a "Speedy" Gonzales Stock.

Maybe a 50BMG, maybe....

If I move out of state then:
A Bushmaster M-17s KKF'd up, An Armalite AR-10 and an M4gery.

Possibly an HK-91.

Rifle: Some type of FAL, probably a DSA.

Pistol: I'd love a 1911, any suggestions?

CZ 75B. I put the pistol on layaway. 1 -10 rounder, 1-15 rounder. Great trigger, $370.

I found the Kadet 22 rimfire conversion for $229 with two mags, so that went on the credit card, and is being shipped as we speak.

- A Chinese made Makarov to go with my E. German, Bulgarian, and Russian Makarovs.

- A new post-ban 20" upper for my DPMS Panther 16. I am just not too thrilled with the 16" barrel length. Anyone wanna trade?

I am about to finish a Glock 20. New barrel, springs, sights. I am working on a semi 1919. It is slowly coming together. I still have lots to do though.

I'm probably going to build a 20" AR when I get this done.

I've got a Enfield L39A1 on layaway...

I'm finishing-up my first AR. Bought a RRA striped lower awhile back and recently finished that. The RRA "Varmint" upper (24") arrived last Monday. Now on to the scope & mounts...

I can hardly wait to shoot the thing!

Next project (presuming the AR gets "finished"): I have an Argentine 1909 7.65mm Barreled Action that I thought I might use as a basis for a 6mm/284 varmint rifle. I'm thinking about a heavy, 26" PacNor for this 'un.

Theoretically you can sight any scope in with ONE shot.
Link Posted: 7/25/2002 12:36:15 PM EST
Next project:

Rem 700LTR .308 20" with Gemtech TPR-S suppressor, Leupold MKIV bases, rings and scope, Parker-Hale bipod, aftermarket trigger of some kind (Timney?), barrel Black-Star electropolished and cryo treated.

That's what I'm thinking.

Tax Stamp Pending on AOW:
Mine is blued though and was a Secret Service contract overrun... kind of cool the Remington box has the USSS contract number and name on it

After that, CANS!!!!:

Then I'll be done.... maybe.... then I'll start aquiring more and more firearms as long as I can answer "Yes" to one question about the firearm: "Can I thread that and suppress it?"

It's a sick, sick disease that can never be cured.

Next thing on my plate is to glass-bed my Savage .243.

Then I might try my hand at making a custom tactical scope mount for the Savage... or at least something that will allow me to move the scope back another inch or so.

When I get the rest of the $$ from my friend who is buying my Ruger PC9, I will probably be in the market for a CZ75.
